It is a very serious play and it has been a long time since I’ve watched something so intense. Overall, I felt that the acting was superb except that the lead actress, Juliet Stevenson, was a little TOO dramatic at the start. She showed her range of sarcasm, hysteria and melancholy a lot better towards the later half of the play.
I didn’t know that this play is so old that a film starring Julie Andrews, Liam Neeson and Rupert Everet was made in 1986!
Let me leave you with a quote from the play, which I think sums up the whole moral of it. “The meaning of Life is life itself!”
